103 This concerns Li Xiwu. Pei Jingzhou Can’t Calm Down

At this moment, Li Xiwu couldn’t describe how she felt with words. Actually, she didn’t have to come today.

At that time, she could pretend not to have seen the message that had been sent to her. She could pretend not to know anything and ignore it. It had nothing to do with her. Then, she could stay in the inn in peace and continue recording today’s live broadcast.

But she was here anyway.

On the way here, she stepped on the accelerator several times. She thought she must be crazy. Otherwise, why would she do such a crazy thing!

When she arrived at the Pei Corporation building, she suddenly calmed down a lot. At the same time, she realized that she did not seem to have forced herself to come. Instead, she followed her heart. She looked up at Pei Jingzhou and pursed her lips.

Pei Jingzhou asked her, “What else do you want to know?”

Li Xiwu really didn’t know how to respond to all he’d done for her, so she simply changed the subject. “Can I see your hands?”

Pei Jingzhou naturally reached out his hand. “It’s already bandaged. You can’t see the wound. Why don’t I get the doctor to remove the gauze so you can take a closer look?”

Li Xiwu couldn’t help but squeeze his wrist. Pei Jingzhou hissed. “It hurts.”

Li Xiwu didn’t know if she pinched his wound. She let go a little and said in a lukewarm tone, “Fourth Brother has times when he cries out in pain.”

Pei Jingzhou leaned over slightly and closed the distance between them. “It hurts when it’s too tight.”

Li Xiwu looked up. “Can you be serious?”

Pei Jingzhou looked away. “I said cufflinks.” After saying that, he even asked her seriously, “What did you think of?”

Li Xiwu: “…”

The atmosphere was not very serious from the beginning. In the originally serious topic, he would tease her from time to time, and every time, it was just right, but the atmosphere was surprisingly harmonious.

When Li Xiwu lowered her eyes and focused on Pei Jingzhou’s arm, his gaze traced her lowered eyelashes. “I asked He Wang to go to the Fourth High School to get evidence.”

Li Xiwu suddenly sat up straight. Pei Jingzhou saw the change in her expression. “Surprised?”

Li Xiwu was quite surprised, but she did not show it very clearly. After a moment of silence, she asked calmly, “How did Fourth Brother know that Chi Xu’s sister was also problematic?”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “Husband and wife are one. I can guess what you’re thinking.”

Li Xiwu said, “Just a guess?”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. Actually, she knew that he didn’t really read minds. He just knew her very well. And he knew her very well. But they had only been together for three years, and he seemed to have known her since they were young. Why?

After retracting her thoughts, Li Xiwu straightened up. “What else did Fourth Brother arrange?”

Pei Jingzhou leaned back. “I’ve sent the truth to Xie Wen’s parents.”

Li Xiwu’s jaw tightened. “I’ve been in contact with Xie Wen’s parents recently. I’ve also sent the evidence over.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “What a coincidence.”

Li Xiwu stared at Pei Jingzhou for a while. “Fourth Brother, you know that I’ve been in contact with Xie Wen’s parents recently, right?”

Pei Jingzhou did not deny it in the end. Since he had agreed to talk openly, he would either not talk or confess. There was no point in hiding it. Otherwise, she would be unhappy.

Li Xi lowered her eyelashes. “Then the public opinion online…”

Pei Jingzhou said, “You don’t have to look at it.”


Actually, the public opinion online had already been suppressed a lot.

Pei Jingzhou naturally had his own arrangements for giving Chi Xu a chance to call the police and expose this matter. However, if the public opinion on the Internet went too far, Pei Jingzhou naturally would not let this public opinion ferment.

They could attack him. But they could not attack Li Xiwu.

Therefore, the trending topics had only been hanging for more than half an hour. Now that the popularity had decreased, there were no longer any topics or words about this matter on the trending list.

Besides, in half an hour, the effect he wanted had been achieved.

Li Xiwu raised her lips. “Fourth Brother, do you think I can’t stand the public opinion on the Internet?”

Pei Jingzhou raised his eyebrows and did not comment.

Li Xiwu said, “I’ve seen too much public opinion. There’s nothing strange about it. However, this is the first time Fourth Brother has been scolded online. I wonder how you’re feeling?”

Pei Jingzhou was slightly stunned. So, she cared about his feelings? “Didn’t look, so I’m not affected,” he said.

Li Xiwu smiled. “My first reaction when I saw the trending topic was that there was actually no need to expose the contents of the ward interview with Chi Xu. I could just submit the evidence, but last night’s accident disrupted many things.”

She suddenly mentioned last night’s accident. Pei Jingzhou’s expression darkened. The next second, his hand was covered by a soft palm. Pei Jingzhou looked down. Li Xiwu’s palm was covering the back of his hand. She held his hand and looked up at him. “Don’t be angry.”

Pei Jingzhou pursed his thin lips like a willow leaf. It was impossible not to be angry. In the business world and in the circle of friends, he talked about the structure and took care of the overall situation. However, this matter concerned Li Xiwu. Li Xiwu was the one who had structure or the overall situation.

That’s why this morning happened.

“I’m not angry anymore.” Pei Jingzhou couldn’t make it too obvious. His gaze stopped on her neck and he asked, “Does your neck still hurt?”

Li Xiwu’s lips curled unconsciously. “It doesn’t hurt anymore.”

Pei Jingzhou reached over. “Let me see.”

Li Xiwu did not dodge. She let Pei Jingzhou reach over and lift her collar. The touch of his hand on hers was warm. His hand wasn’t cold, but when his hand came close to her neck, the skin on it tingled like an electric shock, and goosebumps rose quickly. She cringed, too.

Pei Jingzhou’s hand stopped in midair and he smiled. “I forgot to warm my hand first.”

Li Xiwu lifted her collar a little and revealed her clean and fair neck to Pei Jingzhou. His eyes darkened. She said, “No more marks. It doesn’t hurt.”

Actually, there was still a little mark. After all, Chi Xu had strangled her very hard last night. However, the mark was very faint. One needs to look for it carefully before seeing it. She had just restored her collar when she heard Pei Jingzhou say, “I saw what happened last night.”

Li Xiwu’s hand, which was about to drop, paused.

Looking carefully at Pei Jingzhou’s expression, he did not seem to be fooling her. However, if Pei Jingzhou had really seen Chi Xu strangle her last night, how could he not attack on the spot and wait until the next day to take revenge?

That didn’t make sense!

The only possibility was that Pei Jingzhou did not see it on the spot. But there was no one else around at that time. They were also a certain distance from the inn, and the surveillance camera was also in a blind spot. She had specially seen this before. It could only be said that Chi Xu was thoughtful enough.

Li Xiwu thought for only a few seconds before reacting quickly. “Is it a dash camera?”

Pei Jingzhou’s voice was mixed with a smile. “My wife is always the smartest.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

Li Xiwu guessed it. But she would not know that Pei Jingzhou had looked at her neck last night after she fell asleep. In the middle of the night, he went to retrieve the surveillance footage outside the inn. However, because the surveillance footage was a blind spot, he went to retrieve the dashcam of the surrounding cars.

When he saw the recording of Li Xiwu being strangled by Chi Xu, he almost lost his mind and crushed the phone with his bare hands. He almost rushed upstairs and kicked open the door, pulling Chi Xu out and beating him to death.
